A Christmas Tree for the Chickadee

I have Christmas card to share today - a reminder that there is still time to join in on the Sept. CAS Christmas Challenge
I made a Christmas Tree for a chickadee to celebrate the holidays.  Animals need to decorate their woodland homes too right??!!

Stamps and dies are from Winter Woods by PTI.  I inked the pine branch using Distress Walnut Stain and Forest Moss.  I inked the bird with Stormy Sea and True Black from PTI. 

The sentiment is a Metallic Sticker/Holiday Talk from Idea-ology.  I added 3 enamel dots from Altenew as either ornaments or berries!  Little chickadee is popped up on foam dots.
We'd love to see your CAS Christmas Tree card design!   Check out the inspiration from the Design Team and our lovely Sept Guest Designer and add your card to Mr. Linky over at the blog!

Ink:  Ranger Distress Walnut Stain, Forest Moss, Stormy Sea, True Black - PTI.

Absolutely in LOVE with this card Julia!! I haven't used that set in soooo long and had forgotten how beautiful it is in all it's simplicity! I love how you kept all the colors muted except for the pops of red with the berries (or ornaments!)...CAS perfection my friend!! :0)

This is so adorable Julia! Love this beautiful tree. Your chickadee looks right at home among the branches. Love the red accents to give a pop of brightness. xx

I'm really loving these colors, Julia, and that chickadee is adorable sitting in that little tree! I wish our birds would decorate all the trees in our yard. Wouldn't that be a sight and they could reach into those tall branches too. What a wonderful idea!

Oh fun!... love your upscale “Charlie Brown“ Christmas tree! 😉 Your chickadee is coloured so beautifully. The pop of red enamel dots is a perfect finishing touch.

This is sooo pretty, Julia! LOVE your lovely chickadee perching on the tree! That beautiful greenish gray with black is a wonderful combination and the pop of the shiny red berries is so festive!
